Welcoming Back the UWO Chapter of PRSSA

13 10 2014

Thank you to PRSSA PR Director Ryan Smith for his guest blog. 

The fall 2014 semester is under way and so is another session of the Dr. Julie Henderson Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America at UW Oshkosh. There is a lot to look forward to this year with new board members, another trip to a national conference, new campaigns and our own conference this spring.

With a new school year comes new board members and new ideas. PRSSA is excited to welcome Isaac Haight as the new chapter president. Joining Isaac on the executive board are Lauree Frechette as vice president and National Organ Donor Awareness Competition leader, Geoff Garza as treasurer and Brennan Keglar as secretary.

In addition to the executive board, there are some new faces in chair positions. Ryan Smith is the new PR director, joining Maddie Fisher as social media chair, Olivia Steuer as fund-raiser and Ashley Whaples as event planner.

In October, several members will represent the chapter at the PRSSA national convention in Washington. This provides an opportunity to network with other PRSSA members and professionals in the field. It is also a chance to learn and find new ideas to help continue to grow our program. While students will be attending the PRSSA conference, the UW Oshkosh PRSSA chapter adviser and journalism department professor, Dr. Julie Henderson, will be accepting the Outstanding Educator Award.

PRSSA will be working on another organ donor campaign in the spring. In addition to the organ donor entry, the members of PRSSA will be putting together a conference featuring a variety of speakers at UWO.

Students interested in joining or learning more about PRSSA can attend the weekly meetings on Thursday nights at 5 p.m. in Sage 3412.
